The breakdown of law and order on our southern border with Mexico has reached new heights with over 2 million migrant encounters in fiscal year 2022 alone:
The number of migrant encounters at the southern border this fiscal year has now exceeded two million, sources tell Fox News — a number that marks a new record, as well as a glaring sign of the enormous and ongoing crisis facing agents, officials and communities at the border.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Monday that there were 199,976 migrant encounters in July, taking the total so far this fiscal year to 1.946 million encounters.
CBP sources tell Fox that since then, that numbers have now surpassed the two million mark, a milestone not hit before at the border. Last year, in a record-setting year that saw more than 1.7 million encounters, agents had made approximately 1.2 million encounters at this time.
Unfortunately, these numbers shouldn't come as a huge shock considering how the Biden Administration has made it their mission to repeal every effective immigration policy put in place during the Trump Administration.
As the Ethics and Public Policy Center's Henry Olsen wrote, the Biden Administration's complete dereliction of duty on the southern border is ironic considering their supposed prioritization of the "rule of law":
We’ve been hearing a lot about the “rule of law” lately. Biden’s look-the-other-way immigration policy is in effect an ingenious way to avoid that rule. That mocks the principle he piously says he supports.
This is bad for the country for a host of reasons. It’s bad because it does a nation no good to disrespect its own borders. It’s bad because as the country recovers from the pandemic, allowing massive numbers of people to join the economy means legal residents will have to compete with them for jobs. And it’s bad because it divides our country by flagrantly ignoring the sentiments of the half or so of voters who want illegal immigration to be controlled. So much for “healing the nation.”
Voters need to hold President Biden accountable for his disastrous agenda this November by voting Republican.
